I don’t have a lot of childhood memories of Easter. Growing up and going to church was hit and miss for me.
My memories of Easter as a kid consisted of a few egg hunts, but mostly I remember the family picnics.
I grew up in the south. With Spring making an earlier appearance in the south, by Easter, it was good picnic weather. Mom would fry chicken and make potato salad.
The Easter celebration today for kids, is SO commercialized. It’s like a 2nd Christmas for a lot of kids. Huge Easter baskets, overflowing with candy and toys. Then they get a whole new wardrobe. Lots of kids get even more than that.
I don’t get it. I don’t see the connection; the reason for all the excess.
It’s a good thing that I don’t have little kids, because I would be a real stick-in-the-mud over Easter. Possible church services, a nice meal and maybe that egg hunt. I think that’s quite sufficient.
I’m sorry folks, I didn’t mean to be such a wet blanket on the celebration of Easter. If you celebrate this holiday, I wish you a Happy and beautiful Easter.
